Officers in Suffolk County reunited with a new mother and her baby they helped bring into the world.
The heartwarming reunion in Yaphank comes after Heather Warren had her baby boy Kendall on the kitchen floor of her Bellport home back in August.
"I'm sure for Christian and Heather when they envisioned the birth of their beautiful son here they never envisioned it would happen on the kitchen floor," said Stuart Cameron, the Suffolk Police Acting Commissioner.
Warren received assistance from officers and ambulance personnel after baby Kendall needed medical attention at the scene resulting from him being born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.
"All of a sudden I realized my baby, 'Where is my baby and what's going on?'," said Warren. "And you know the South Country ambulance and police were so focused on the baby, and I wasn't getting answers. And I was calling, 'why isn't my baby crying? Eventually I was reassured that they were working and everything was going to be ok."
"We are just forever grateful for everyone working together and keeping me and Kendall safe during a very stressful and unknown time."
Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone also praised those who helped Warren and baby Kendall.

"Because of everyone's efforts that day - in what was no doubt a high stress situation, that's an understatement - both mother and baby boy are here with us today and healthy and doing well and that is a blessing," he said.
